Sad passings and a new beginning

Hey - did you hear that Ronald Reagan died? No fooling! He's getting some big state funeral today, and people have been going to view him at the Capitol rotunda. Yeah, I was surprised too - it's like no one at all in the media is talking about it.

And now another sad passing (sans the sarcasm) - Ray Charles passed away yesterday. He shall be missed.

In much brighter news - Leo LaPorte has announced that he has accepted a job to host a daily show for G4/TechTV Canada!!! This is good news - Leo's regular presence on our TV screens has been missed. I'm just hoping that this will be carried on G4/TechTV here in the States...

Yeah right - like I even care ;) What really disturbs me about the Jennifer Lopez/Marc Anthony "marriage" is that he divorced his wife Dayanara Torres ONE WEEK before marrying J. Lo. That's cold man.
He left this -

For this -

I don't know - but I'd have stayed with the woman I have TWO KIDS with. Maybe I'm weird...

Emergency post - The Amazing Race 5

I'm in trouble - I didn't post about The Amazing Race 5, premiering July 6th on CBS. So, here's a post about it.

Starting Tuesday July 6th - 11 teams of two, all with pre-existing relationships, will start off on a race around the world. For the last team standing - 1 million dollars. For everyone else - Philimination!!! (Heh, I just had to throw that in there. The Television Without Pity folks will get that. If you don't read TWoP - click the link and start! What's wrong with you?). Check the CBS website for more info - including the hot off the internet presses list of Racers!

There you go sweetie, I kept my promise to post about TAR. (Love you!)


It's been a while since I posted, so I figured I'd better fix that ;).

Gaze in wonder and amazement at the new Apple G5 - now all dual 64-bit processor powered. Hence the title of the post - cause I'm sitting here slack jawed and drooling over this. Plus - the top-'o-the-line dual 2.5 GHz G5's are liquid cooled. Pretty slick, eh? Of course, since the dual 2.5 GHz G5 system starts at $2,999 (yipe!) I'm not going to be getting one anytime soon.

Better be sure those hard drives are really 100% cleaned before you sell them - a company bought a hard drive from eBay and found a financial services company's customer database and access codes for the company's secure intranet on it. Oopsie!

It's not much, but it's todays post. Hope this keeps my 3 or 4 readers RIVETED. At least till tomorrow's post - right? ;)
